For the VERY FIRST TIME, in my whole entire life, I made it to the top of the mountain hiking!!! It took me two hours to hike up and two hours back down, and 30 minutes to chill and take pictures on top!!! So it was a grand total of 5 hours up and down!!! I know that hiking to the top of a mountain may not seem like a big deal, buuuuuut FOR ME, its a HUGE DEAL!!! There is NO way I could have done this hike without these two sticks to dig in and keep my balance, there were some parts that were soooo steep I had NO idea how to go accept almost sit down and slide...This is BY FAR, THE HARDEST THING I HAVE EVER PHYSICALLY ACCOMPLISHED IN MY LIFE!!!
The moment you decide that TODAY IS THE DAY,
you will climb to the top of that mountain!!!
On my way up!!!
Taking a little rest!!!
Annnnnd I KEEP GOING!!!

You guys have NO IDEA, how many times I ALMOST turned around!!!

Buuuuuuuuuuuuut I kept going!!!
Annnnnnnnnnd FINALLY you see the peak, ONE LAST, BIG CLIMB!!!
I know that doesn't look like anything more than a little hill, buuuuut it really was BIG and steep, the picture really couldn't capture that!!!!

Annnnnnnnnnd then THE MOMENT YOU DO IT...
your standing on the peak!!!
You guys have NO IDEA how happy I was when I reached the top and was standing on that peak!!! I felt such exileration!!! I was like shouting out, JESUS!!! Thank you Jesus!!! Annnnnnnd just to be honest with you all, it turned into a little worship service up there on that mountain peak!!!
I was just chilling and worshipping God up there!!!
I really thought I was all alone, just ME and Jesus!!! Buuuuuuuuuuuut I guess you could say that THE NEXT HIKER up the mountain got a LITTLE more than he anticipated when he got to the top as well with my worshipping God up there!!! Hee, hee!!!
Annnnnnnnnnd this is me, HI!!! This is my FIRST TIME hiking to the top!!!!
Heres a few scenic pictures!!!
The view truly was BEAUTIFUL!!!
The pictures really don't give the view justice!!!
It was awesome!!!
Sooooooooo cool being that high up

Annnnnnnnnnnnd knowing you were that high, BECAUSE YOU CLIMBED IT!!!

Paradise Valley!!!
The sunset was BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Something I always wanted to do was read my Bible at the top, it was so cool just sitting there reading on top of that peak!!! You all have gotta do that some time!!!
Sunset behind me...

Weeeeeeeeeeeeellllll I better start heading back!!!

That moment in your hike back down when you realize that you probably should have started back sooner!!!

You'd be surprised how much light the moon actually puts out tho...I MADE IT BACK by 8!!! Soooooooooooo I probably won't be doing the whole hike up to often right now, considering that it took me 5 hours up and down, buuuuuuuuuut I WILL do it again!!! For now I'll probably just hike up for 30-45 minutes and then head back down, thatll be at least an hour of exercise!!!
Buuuuuuuuuuuuut I DID IT YOU GUYS,
I DID IT!!!!
